    Hi - I've just joined the android world with the droid 2 i upgraded to. The unit rocks - cant believe it. Quik question - I am able to BT files from my computer TO the phone. Files around 4mb so far no prob. I've got a 9.5mb vid i want to bt over to the phone but it errors out with an internal error msg. Is there a BT receive size limit or such?

    you know - just for sh*ts and giggles I tried sending a 400MB vid and the droid prompted for confirmation. The 400MB vid is avi. The 9mb file i want to send is flv. I guess the droid does not recognize flv and disallows the xfer?

    oh well.

    idk about bluetooth but may i suggest using dropbox - its a simple cloud folder you can sync your phone and computers to.

    Dropbox - 2.25 GB free

    I could be wrong here but on the D1 (look at me assuming while already assuming... this is going downhill) you have to allow all file types. I can't really remember this much except I feel like I did that in the settings in order to transfer file types the D1 didn't recognize. Otherwise, it blocked em.

    Abe.. I am trying out a new app called Tonidoid. If you are a dropbox user, I would highly recommed trying this app out. When I say trying out, I didn't make it or anything. I just wanted my wife to quit complaining about trying to send twenty... 5meg pics in an email and it not working. :)

    I don't know man. I just remember having to uncheck or check a box somewhere to allow certain file types. Would definately need someone that knows about it more to chime in.
